Exa Infrastructure has unveiled a new route connecting Ashburn and Atlanta, enhancing its presence in North America.

Atlanta is emerging as a key data centre hub and is the fastest-growing data centre market in the US according to the CBRE North America Data Center Trends H2 2023 Report.

Data centre projects under active construction in Atlanta increased by 211% between H1 20243 and H2 2023, with notable major campus developments on the drawing board, as outlined in the report.

The new report will follow the base of the Appalachians and will introduce a “resilient and diverse” offering from all the existing options on this route.

Exa will deploy the new DWDM Flex Ciena system for optimal latency and optionality up to 400G.

“This is a major step for EXA Infrastructure, as we continue to deliver on our wider strategy to connect high-growth data centre markets across North America,” says Steve Roberts, SVP of strategic investments and product management at Exa Infrastructure.

“Atlanta is a key market for many of our customers, including those in the AI-focused industries, and this new route will serve their connectivity needs to Europe and beyond”.

This network expansion in North America is aligned with Exa infrastructure’s investment strategy to expand its owned vast network and provide more on-net route combinations for connectivity to new data centre markets and across the Atlantic.

Customers will be able to single source ‘on-net’ circuits end-to-end from Atlanta to London, thereby achieving better operational efficiency and control.
